The Competitive Events Coordinator for ArenaNet, Joshua Davis, writes:

“Before
any teams can start making travel plans to Beijing, they will need to
finish out the current open competition taking place in the Tournament
of Glory.  The Tournament of Glory was an open invite to anyone who
plays PvP in
Guild Wars 2 to see if they
have what it takes to become a world class competitor. In round after
round of fierce fighting, these players have been fighting to survive.”
